Brushing & Food: Keys to Maintaining Your Cat's Oral Health
Did you know that brushing your cat's teeth is just as important as brushing your own? According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3. Brushing your cat's teeth is easier if you follow this step-by-step guide.
Poor oral health often begins with a buildup of sticky plaque that, if not removed, hardens to form tartar. This can impact the health of your cat's teeth and gums.
Signs of a Problem:
- Bad breath
- Yellow or brown buildup on teeth
Always consult your veterinarian if you have questions about your cat's health.

Hypertyreos är en vanlig endokrin sjukdom som oftast diagnostiseras hos katter över 10 år gamla. Obehandlad hypertyreos kan få allvarliga, ibland dödliga, konsekvenser för vitala organ som hjärta och njurar. Den goda nyheten är att sjukdomen är i hög grad behandlingsbar och kan kontrolleras med rätt veterinärvård.
